My missileer time was spent at Hahn from Mar 60 thru Jul 63 mostly at site V. I have very fond memories of our generator room and the number of times those generators gave us all trouble. I recognized many of the names on the list and would like very much to see you all again. I'm planning to attend the Orlando reunion so put me on the list for two people. My e-mail address is: Thanks Joe and Gary for all your work in this undertaking.

Hi, GREAT SITE!! I'll be back 🙂 I really LOVE the Mace Missile and Teracruzer. Soon I will built a 1:32 model, based on the old Renwal (1958) kit. I have some information/documentation about this interesting weapon system. For your information. I have a big US Army Modeling Site with the name MIL-MOD: MIL-MOD has also 10 Newsgroups. Soon there will be on MIL-MOD a big historical article about the Mace/Teracruzer, incl. many photos. I hope you will have a visit. Thanks from Holland, Wim Vink

I'm really glad I found this website. I have enjoyed seeing all the info and hearing about folks I haven't seen for many years. I was an instructor at Lowry, Orlando and the Cape in addition to crew duty at Hahn, Bitburg, and Kadena. The TAC Missile years were the best of my career. To whomever put this site together - Thanks!!

I was stationed at Sembach from 1961-1965. Was at site 3 (Grunstadt) for 13 months, then the 38TMW at Sembach, until March 1965, was sent to Vandenberg AFB, CA. I retired out of Vandenberg AFB in 1970 & liked this area & weather so well, that I have made Santa Maria, CA my home. Anyone who may remember me are welcome to send an e-mail my way. I plan on being in Dallas, TX in late August 2000 & hope to see a lot of OLD familiar troops there. I'm the guy who sent Joe Perkins those old I.D. pictures of Sembach troops, & he was kind enough to put them on the web. See you all in Dallas - Beryl Ristine

What a great site! I have renewed several old acquaintances from 36 years ago. I was at Sembach from May '62 through Dec. '64 ('A' Flight '62-'63; Gruenstadt 'C' Flight 63-64); Mech. I on Lt. Davenport's, Capt. Chuck Cage's, and Capt. Ray Berry's launch crews. I live very close to the location for the reunion in August, so I'll be there. Hope to see many familiar (albeit older) faces. Please, any old buddies who might remember me, send e-mail. I'd love to hear from you.

I signed in earlier, but my e-mail address has changed, and I am too dumb to correct it. I was at Hahn from 64 thru 66, and worked mostly at Site IV as a flight controls mechanic. Hope to hear from old friends, and I really hope to see a lot of you in Dallas.
